One o f' the most valuable asset*

Too much cannot be said or written
in their favor.

j tent that trees will be denuded of
their foliage, plant* and crops can-
| not be produced.
There are more than 1,200 species
| o f our native birds, and millions of
i individuals. As a result of the ex-
I animation o f more than 50,000
stomachs of birds, they established
beyond a reasonable doubt that birds
are of economic value, first in eat
ing harmful insects, their eggs and
larvae. Second, in eating the seeds
o f noxious weeds. Third, in devour
ing field mice and other small ro
dents that injure the crops, and
fourth, in acting as scavengers.
W hile the economic value o f birds
should be kept in mind the esthetic
value should also be considered. Man
does not live by broad alone. We
should protect them for their grace
ful forms, their charming beauty,
their delightful melody and their
joyous activity.— T h rift Magazine.
